Fodor's Review

When this 150-year-old estancia was established by the great-grandparents of César and Camilo Aldao Bombal in 1830, San Rafael was still a fort; the ranch house (really a gorgeous mansion) today is filled with objects from around the world, and many of Argentina's foremost writers (including Jorge Luis Borges) and artists have stayed here; they left their paintings on walls and their poetry scattered around the premises. You dine with the owners (who speak English well

and have amazing stories to share), and a fireplace glows in every room on cool nights. Prices include all meals, plus tea on the veranda, an open bar, and generous wine from the family's 100-year-old vineyard. Horses are available for an extra charge. There is also a spectacular, gigantic labyrinth dedicated to Borges to leisurely wander on the property.
